Mistake (he was opposed to prosecution of war criminals!)[edit]

You got it wrong. You write: "Although he had been a member of the Nazi Party, he advocated the condemnation of the German war criminals, something which led to a scandal in 1970 when he initially failed to make it as a Commissioner in the European Economic Community because of public pressure."

Actually he was opposed to prosecution of (any) Nazi perpetrators. (For a while he was quite active campaigning for an amnesty, but he also used obstruction.) That of course was what led to the scandal. Greetings, 80.104.217.153 (talk) 13:03, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

I also found this sentence to be nonsensical, as he actively campaigned for the amnesty for all war criminals. I'd like to eit it unless there are objections. I assume this is just an error in translation. K.e.coffman (talk) 03:29, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Falkenhausen acquitted?[edit]

This article says he successfully defended Alexander von Falkenhausen against war crime charges but the article on Falkenhausen says Falkenhausen was convicted.

It can't be both. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 23.119.204.117 (talk) 14:26, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
